Women have been missing roughly every two years from the Mellow Tallow Pub and Kevyn is suspicious that the quiet and attractive young man who keeps to himself in the small village has a secret to hide. So she decides to conduct her own investigation.
The story gradually unfolds between Kevyn’s point of view, and John Vickers, who she suspects of killing the women. Kevyn is drawn from her comfortable world into one where there are no easy answers. Though sometimes painful to read, the story is touching and poses hard questions about faith.
John Vickers (not his real name) is a man who walks four miles each day. Lamar thinks he is a serial killer, but of course, no one believes her, so she sets out to find the truth.
Killer Conversations is as dark a story as they come, dealing with child abuse, rape, addictions, etc. Stephanie Parker McKean has penned a page-turner. Though some parts were so raw that I had to skip over them, I was hooked from the first page to the last.
My readings tastes range from fantasy to sci-fi and rarely do I read a book about serial killers. I like to escape from the nasty side of life and not embrace it.
However the author's writing style kind of hooked me in and made me want to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.
The serial killer in the book is a mixture of personalities and if you try to hate him you end up liking him and if you like him too much you'll end up hating him. It's hard to explain you'll just have to read the book and I never give anything away in my reviews.
The author breathes reality in her characters and breathes realism into the scenery and circumstances she paints with words. You get immersed in the book and can picture the faces and places quite clearly.
One thing some people might not like is the Christian undertones found throughout but that doesn't bother me in the least. Religion was part of the book's story and it was needed for it to be woven properly. It could have been about Buddhism or whatever other religion and I would have read it with the same open mindedness.
It's a moody and dark and quite descriptive and gritty book but that just serves to make the story that much more poignant and interesting. I like the fact that one of the main characters is from Texas since that's where I live, and I like the locale of Scotland as the backdrop.
I would recommend this book to any lover of a good mystery and to one that like a story that explores the different hells humans can create for one another and how much effort it takes to crawl out of them in one piece.
Definitely well worth the read and the author definitely needs to raise the price. 8)
The loose structure occasionally caused me some confusion along the way, but I enjoyed the book nonetheless. This fast-moving thriller was a surprisingly quick read.
